Where can I find malware-free Android rooting software?

Bob B September 30, 2013

The Android Rooting Guide suggests SuperOneClick and UnlockRoot for use with Windows 7. Scanning with JottiQ finds a trojan in SuperOneClick and a adware in UnlockRoot.

Are malware-free versions available or is there something else which will work and is malware-free?

    The software you downloaded are not viruses, or contain viruses. As Hovsep mentioned, the methods used to root your phone have similar behavior as viruses being that it uses exploits (such as rageagainstthecage). I'm not saying that it can't be used for virus infections, but in order to root a device, exploits are used to break through the protections. This is why you have to disable any antivirus and antimalware software to root an android device using software like SuperOneClick. If you don't, serious issues may occur that may or may not be fixable.

    Rooting your phone is to change originally code set on your phone, therefore with this behaviour anti-viruses will detect one-click roots as a malware.
